skincare rountine

Here is a little nosey at my skincare rountine, it's a bit of a mixture - I love all these products. They work really well for me but everyone's skin is unique so it's best to sample these before you buy!

LP Skin Therapy face wash 15.00
I like to use this on day's when my face feels like to doesn't want cleansing, it has a lovely orangey scent too it & a little bit goes a long way! It leaves my skin refreshed and feeling soft.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser 13.25
Do I need to say anything? This is good. If you've not tried it and thinking you would like to, they do a smaller travel sized version for 5.10 & it's free delivery atm!

Living Nature Gentle Eye Make Up Remover 11.75
Does what it says, gently removes all traces of eye make up. It contains 100% natural ingredients. They recommend you use a warm damp cotton pad to remove your eye make up, I've never heard of doing that before but it's a great tip.

LP Skin Therapy Overnight Replenish 47.00
Another thing from the LP range, it must be good! This is the first night cream I've ever used. I never really thought there was much point having one, but I do now! It's not too heavy and in the morning my skin has a healthy glow to it.

Liz Earle light moisturiser 17.60
I love this moisturiser because it smells lovely and it's light, ideal for the summer. It add a nice natural glow to my skin. The only bad thing about this is that I don't think it has any SPF.

Neals Yard Replenishing Eye Cream 22.50
I suffer from under eye dark circles so eye cream is a must have item for me. I love this one by Neals Yard, it helps to reduce puffiness & dark circles; meaning I don't need to use as much concealer! It smells lovely, and also contains no synthetic fragrances or colours.

Avene Moderate Protection Spray 20 SPF 21.00
I love this because it has a pump, not as messy, It also protects against UVB & UVA rays, the formula is light and non-greasy AND it's water resistant; what more do you need?! I like to spray a little of this on my face after I've moisturised.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
Not another Liz Earle product, Sorry! But they are good :) This really helps to soothe and brighten my skin. It smell lovely too, with hints of rose, aloe vera & cucumber.

and then something special..

Here are some products that I like to treat my skin to weekly/monthly. If I've illustrated a beauty product you know it's a good'en!

Dr. Organic Virgin Olive Oil Face Mask 6.19
I like to use a face mask every other week, this is my go-to one as it leaves my skin firm and hydrated. It has a clay based formula that draws oil from the pores whilst getting rid of dead skin cells.

Shu Uemura Depsea Water 16.50
This gentle spray mist's lightly onto my face, sink's into my skin & leaves it feeling refreshed. They have a range of different aroma's, my current fav is lavender (illustrated above). It's great if your skin is looking a bit tired!

Queen Sensiderma Rich Hand Cream 9.35
I'm quite fussy when it comes to hand creams, This is a lovely one from Queen. If your not familiar with the company you must check out their website; http://www.queen-cosmetics.com/ . It has a non greasy formula and sinks quickly into my skin, leaving my hands looking & feeling softer. Unlike some companies they don't force customers to buy products, They are very helpful, their products contain no unnecessary ingredients & sometimes send out free samples. Definitely a brand worth checking out!

Kiehls Creme De Corps 27.00
Such a lovely body moisturiser, definitely going in my top 5. This absorbs nicely, it has a thick, luxurious, non-greasy formula and leaves my skin hydrated. Simple yet effective.

St Ives Apricot Scrub 1.01 30ml
I like to exfoliate my face once a week and this is my favourite face scrub, the smell,the product,the price! I love everything about this. A lot of my friend use this, I would highly recommend it.

MakeBelieve Foaming Self Tan 30.00
If I sunbath I normally just get burnt, so fake tan is a much healthier and safer option. This fake tan from MakeBelieve is my all time favourite. I have tested out a lot of different brands and this comes out on top. It smells sweet and can be used on your face and body.

Kiehls Lip balm #1  9.50
With one seamless, lyrical action you can coat your lips with this delicious coconut lip balm. It's scent reminds me of summer. It's consistency is think so a little bit goes a long way!

Bio Oil 60ml 8.99
I'm sure you all recognise this product, renowned for it's quality and versatility. I like to put this on my face once a week before bed, it really helps to hydrate my skin.It also helps improve the appearance of scars, uneven skin tone and ageing skin. One of those must have products.
